There are already plenty of reasons to eat your grains, but here's another one — you'll live longer.
That's at least according to a new study coming out of Harvard's School of Public Health. According to researchers, eating more whole grains may decrease a person's chances of dying by up to 15 percent.
The team's findings were published in the latest issue of JAMA Internal Medicine. Researchers examined data from more than 118,000 nurses and health professionals who filled out dietary questionnaires every two to four years between 1986 and 2010.
